I've posted photos just below this one for followup on this great find. I am 72, have travelled all over Eastern Africa (the size of the USA) collecting old Brit bikes. This was the finest story of my long career..better then when I rescued a pickup tuck load from Idi Amin's liberated Uganda, where the hotels had bullet holes and vultures perched on the roofs. Because then I only had to cross one border back home to Nairobi in Kenya. This time we crossed the Indian Ocean and 3 borders.

Photos of the spectacular background to this find are found at the end of the thread "PHOTOS NOW UPDATED"

The things we do!
